Chiani Desandre (Kee onn ee - Des ohn druh) is a character in my fantasy setting, Dal'kania. Friend to Margot Sandearle and Chloe Ivantier, she is a daughter in the house Desandre, sigil Unicorn. It is a prestigious house, with ties to the ruling house of Dal'kania, the kingdom to the south of Ruzandor. Chiani is anything but a lady though. After acquiring her Great Grandmother's lich phylactory, she learns the Desandre house has a dirty secret which they wish to keep. There have been necromancers in their past, as well as several witches. Chiani, at her dead grandmothers bidding begins to learn the dark arts. Already a somewhat off-balance girl, she becomes even more noticeably strange in the years to come while learning under her grandmother's instruction. She is often thought to be talking to herself, because she hides the phylactory with which she communicates to her dead grandmother from others. When upset she often falls into speaking gibberish words, mumbling under her breath - for which the picture is titled. I wish I had a more detailed picture of her, but since she is one of my favorite characters, this remains one of my faovite pictures. Perhaps later.
